BEST DEALS: HTC Desire for £17 per month through Three UK

If you’re a bit on the anti-social side and don’t make that many phone calls or send many texts, Three has a superb HTC Desire deal running at the moment – the Android phone for “free” in return for signing up for a 24-month, £17 per month tariff.

The contract in question is Three’s Internet Talker 100, which gives you a mere 100 minutes of calling or 100 texts per month. Internet use is “unlimited” which, sadly, is only 500MB per month in Three’s book. How is 500 of something considered an unlimited amount?

The £17 per month charge is a web exclusive including a £2 per month discount. So let’s see if it’s in stock:

htc desire three uk 17

Hmm… two weeks for delivery. Can you contain yourself for a couple of weeks? It’ll turn up eventually, right? That price works out as £408 over the course of the 24 month contract, barely more than the price of an unlocked handset alone. Check it out over at Three UK.

With thanks to commenter “C” for mentioning this – and also reporting the phone arrived UNLOCKED. Which makes this a deal we suspect will NEVER beaten.

You need to click on the “Internet Talker Plans” tab to see the deal. It’s hidden away in there. And it’s still there as of 12.45pm on Sunday, May 9.

    No! You made the same mistake I did. You need to click the “Internet Talker Plans” tab on the tariffs page. It brings up a whole new world of cheap deals.

    Sadly I signed up to a 24-month Twitter contract, so I’m stuck paying for it until September 2011 :(

    Go through and get a further £32 cashback if a new contract – making it £15.66 a month over 24 months. Wish I’d held out a bit longer as I would of been willing to pay a bit more than the £10 a month (£40 for phone – Samsung Galaxy Portal on T-Mobile) to get a Desire.

    Ha Ho – the Portal’s a good phone though (even better when the offical 2.1 update comes out :-)

    I managed to grab one of these, arrived in 2 days + £20 voucher and 2 months spotify premium. I think someone at three must have made a mistake!

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
